Amnesty International has called on The Senate to halt the Kavanaugh nomination process until his involvement in the Bush era abuses of human rights can be determined.
“Amnesty International is calling on senators to to halt the nomination of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over his “possible involvement” in human rights violations after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
The human rights organization wrote in a Monday letter that Kavanaugh might have been involved “in issues related to torture and rendition after 9/11.”
“More information must be made public to determine Kavanaugh’s role in relation to such practices,” the organization wrote. “Amnesty International has long called for declassification of any documents or other materials depicting or describing enforced disappearance, torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or other human rights violations, including acts of abduction and rendition, by US or non-US personnel after the attacks in the USA on September 11, 2001.”
Kavanaugh was working in the George W. Bush administration at the time of the attacks.
Amnesty International is calling for a freeze on Kavanaugh's confirmation process until those documents are released publicly, calling the vetting of Kavanaugh’s human rights record “insufficient.”
Insufficient is generous, non-existent is more like it.
Shut it down, Mitch!
